WIll need more information about what you are trying to adjust?
Machine functions a mechanical cut, but the thread wasn't cut?
Cutter has timing to be set or replace the fixed blade. are two basic possibilities. I need to know what it's doing cut wise? to know what to adjust.

SOURCE: Husqvarna embroidery diamond machine not cutting

If the cutter is not moving when the cutter motor runs, there is probably a gear loose in the cutter mechanism. Take the machine to the dealer that you purchased it from, or the nearest authorized dealer. http://webservices.us.vsmgroup.com/DealerLocator.aspx?Brand=Viking

Make sure that you have your warranty card and purchase receipt. If a gear has broken, the mechanism is warrantied to the original owner for 20 years.
If you are the second owner, or the machine was purchased online instead of through an authorized dealer, an authorized dealer will give you an estimate for parts and labor and repair the problem for you.

Make sure that when your machine stops and cuts that your needle is in the upper most position. Other than that you may need an adjustment from a pro repairman.

My machine trimmed the thread and the trimmers did not return home. I unhooked the thread and they seemingly went back but now my machine keeps giving me an error code 211.


contact the company that makes your sewing machine and go to their customer service and ask them about the error code

Pushing material away, but still overlocking


It is difficult to tell what exactly is happening with your serger.

First thing--make sure you RAISE the presser foot BEFORE you thread any of the threads. This releases the tension disks so the threads will seat properly. You may need to remove all the threads and rethread from the beginning, making sure you thread each in the proper order. Start out with the thread tensions set at the ideal setting--usually the halfway point between the high & low numbers. From there, you will adjust them to even up the thread tensions.

Are you actually trimming off some of the fabric as it is stitching? If so, you might try increasing the cutting width (moves the cutting edge further toward the right) so that there is more fabric caught within the looper threads. It also appears that the looper tensions may be too loose. Try tightening the upper and lower looper tensions so less of the thread loops don't fall off the fabric's raw edge.

Your new embroidery program has to be loaded first. The 2b7 is referring to needing instructions or in other words the embroidery program has to be loaded. Shut the machine down and turn the machine back on and load just as before.

I have just been given a huskylock 341. The tension is off. How do I correct this?


Have you used an overlocker before? If not, I'd suggest that you obtain a user manual for it as they are completely different to a sewing machine and at some point you will need to rethread it. You can purchase one from here
http://pages.sewing-machine-manuals.com/173/PictPage/3923709707.html

This machine makes three and four thread seams, which is a combination of two needles and two loopers. For the three thread seam you can use either the left or right needle which gives you different sized seams. For the four thread you use both needles, one goes through the middle of the seam and the other is on the left side securing the seam. tally_girl_70.jpg On most overlockers you are able to move the cutting blade too and this will reduce or increase the amount of fabric being trimmed from the right side.

This page http://sewing.about.com/od/sergersoverlock/ss/serger.htm will give you some general information on sergers/overlockers too.

So adjusting tension is a matter of changing the tension on the top and lower looper threads to close up against the cut edge, or moving the blade over to make the seam a little wider or narrower. You may also need to finess the left needle tension so that the seam doesn't pull apart, I always test serge two layers and then pull open from the right side and see if the needle thread is showing (it will show a little bit but you dont want it so loose that it pulls open. Only tighten the needles in very small increments though, as you'll break threads and needles if you turn them up too tight.

Hard to explain without seeing what your machine is seaming now. But as a rule of thumb, start with all four tension dials (or 3 if doing a three thread seam) on 5. If the tension dials are correctly calibrated then this should give you a pretty good seam. You may wish to lengthen the stitches, I usually work with stitch length of 2.5 (same as your sewing machine stitch length) Stitch length will be a dial on the right side beside the flywheel or in front of the blade area. The blade adjustment should be a little knob near the blade area too. There will be a lower fixed blade and a moving upper blade which sits against the lower one, they work like scissors to trim the fabric. So to adjust the blade, you will need to take the pressure off the upper blade, then wind the knob to move it left or right.

Different weights of fabric will behave differently on the overlocker so you do need to adjust tension for each new project. For example, if seaming a jersey knit you'd use a four thread seam, this gives elasticity and strength and you can join two garment pieces with this seam. You'd probably make a 6mm or 7mm wide seam, the left needle will secure the fabric and the loopers will encase the fabric smoothly while the right needle secures them and gives extra strenth to the seam.

But on organza for example, I would make a very narrow three thread seam using the right needle as the organza will roll inside the overlocking if you cut the fabric too wide.

And on something like curtains I would neaten the edge with a wide 3 thread seam using the left needle to get a very wide seam, the fabric wont roll so you'd need to loosen the two loopers a little to smoothly encase the cut edge.
tally_girl_71.jpg For example, on this image above you can see that the looper threads are laying a little off the edge of the fabric in places, particularly the lower looper, (the side that looks like Y's where you can't really see the middle needle thread), so I would tighten the lower looper about .5 on its dial, then test again.

I hope that this makes sense to you, you will need to test serge, and adjust one dial at a time, test again and look at the result, then maybe adjust another thread until you are getting a smooth looking seam.

3- CHECK THE PART NAMED THREAD GUIDE FOR KNIF MAYBE BROKEN OR MISSING.
BEFORE YOU CHECK THIS TWO REASONE TRY TO CLEAN ALL EARIA ARROUND FIXED KNIF AND MOVABL KNIF.

Adjusting the timing of the thread trimmer cam

How to adjust the timing

The timing of the thread trimmer cam for cot ton and synt hetic threads can be obulned simply by aligning the marker dot on the machine ann and the marker dot on the handwheel.

Till the machine head. manually tum the handwheel un til the thread take-up lever almost reaches its highest

position . and press th read take-up picket to the right by finger. This causes the earn toller 10 fit

in the groove of the thread trimmer cam. With this condition maintained, tum the handwheel in the direction

opposite to the nonnal rot ational direction . and you will find a position in which the handwheel no longer

turns. Then, adjust the cam timing so that marker dot on the machine ann is aligned with

marker do t on handwheel This provides the proper cam liming for ca tion
and synthetic threads.
